Toni Braxton and Babyface have come together once again to release a duets album. This time they have been through their individual pangs and pains of love, marriage and divorce (which is the name of their new CD). Toni Braxton released the album on heartbreak with her erstwhile musical buddy Babyface.
The original number by Toni Braxton and Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds was titled “Give U My Heart”. Currently, they have colluded to come up with “Love, Marriage & Divorce” which lists the trials and tribulations of the intimacy game.
With almost a dozen songs in its repertoire of rich melodies, which soulfully tell tales of sorrow and romantic longing, the album has spawned an R&B hit. “Hurt You” and “Where Did We Go Wrong?” both made the cut. They will inspire so many who are going through the same emotions of attraction and separation.
After Toni and Babyface both faced their individual marriage hurdles and divorces, they decided that since they have something in common, they can sing about that mutual experience of loss.
With Toni’s rich earthy voice and Babyface’s soft silky crooning, it is an album that anyone who is romantically inclined ought to purchase right away.
Meanwhile, Toni Braxton’s autobiography titled “Unbreak my Heart” will be published soon. Its curious front cover wording comes from a song she once sang. The songs on the current duets album brought the two artists in a state of hybrid creativity.
They naturally gave free rein to their inner child. And both allowed the feelings of hurt and tortured anguish to flow. Their thoughts melded in the form of songs that expressed the beauty and tragedy of love gained and lost.
“Love, Marriage & Divorce” is definitely stuff to listen to while lying back on a sofa. The procession of memories the music induces are soul-stirring indeed.
